“My accomplishments through the Empowerment Program have included getting help to become a stronger person and help others in my community. I was able to graduate a year early because I learned that staying out of trouble and becoming a better person who is kind and responsible will prepare me for my future and help me stay on track in life. Because of the support from HYC Staff and the many guest speakers I have been introduced to, I have stayed off of probation, out of jail, and off drugs, which has changed my life. Love and kindness have been shared through the Empowerment Program, and I feel like the program and people have changed me for the better.”
